Webinar on OPPORTUNITIES FOR PARTICIPATION AND EXPERIENCE STORIES

 

Public participation as a mechanism of promoting good governance and innovation at the same time. 

 

The debate is still ongoing! How to implement it? How to involve the public, what forms of participation to use, how to activate strong communities or allow like-minded people to come together to represent common interests for shaping a strong and functioning living environment?

 

This will be mapped out by Līga Stafecka (Providus lead researcher), talking about participatory budgeting as one of the mechanisms of public participation in the activities of public institutions. Anita Seļicka (Executive Director of the Latvian Rural Forum) will outline the ways to co-create and explore options for cooperation with like-minded people, local governments or non-governmental organizations. Representatives of Gulbene Municipality Council and Vidzeme Planning Region will share their experience story about the implemented types of participation.


Idea-Building Workshop for CREATIVITY OF CULTURAL EVENTS

The second part of the event will include a practical workshop to bring together those who want to learn how to create innovation in the field of culture through public participation and community activities. We will create a concept for innovative cultural project initiatives with design thinking methods through cooperation.
